• North contract – Global Environmental Excellence Ltd
• East contract - Aquatrust Water & Ventilation Ltd
• West contract – Aquatrust Water & Ventilation Ltd

* this decision is exempt from being a key decision because it is implementing an earlier key decision.

Reasons for the decision:

A decision was made to undertake a procurement exercise to establish new contracts for the Water Hygiene: Risk Assessment, Monitoring and Works as the contracts established by the former County Council for this are due to expire on the 30th June 2024. The new contracts include provision to provide all relevant servicing and maintenance for additional Council properties as other contract arrangements expire, as well as provision for Property’s Traded Service Property Solutions clients. The intention to procure was entered onto the forward plan in February 2023 and the decision to procure was made on the 3rd July 2023, with the procurement being a key decision.

The procurement exercise was undertaken by the Council’s Procurement and Contract Management Service September 2023 to June 2024.

Each contract awarded will be for a duration of three years with options to extend for a further two – two-year periods (resulting in a maximum contract period of seven years).
